Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.
~Henry David Thoreau

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Morning work, easy afternoon

 It was a cloudy morning with a temperature of 58
when I walked.
The sun just started to come through the clouds on the way home.

Walked around town and down 219 a ways again.
Most all the wild flowers are now dead along the side of the road.


Went up Sale Barn Road because there were cows in the pasture up that way.
The white one was mooing with meaning!


I thought these trees were getting a trim because they were under
the wires but all of them have been taken completely down.
What a shame to cut down all those perfectly good trees.
They are working on the other big tree there.



Didn't see anyone else out this morning.
Perhaps they will be walking later in the day.

Walked 6 miles

Garden Shed Number 11
This one could use a paint job.


🌼    🌼    🌼

More rock got collected, and added to the Rockscape Island.
Three more loads.

We did that in the morning and took it easy this afternoon.

Thanks for stopping in.
A happy day to you. 🙂

I do wonder why they are taking those trees down....

it was super nice here weather wise but supposed to be back in the low 90's the next two or three days.

I forgot to say yesterday that I loved the garden shed, and I like the one today. It looks like its door could use some work.

...if you enlarge the picture of the tree work it looks like the tree limbs had grown around the wire in one or two places. Trees in the wrong places are problem trees!

Morning work, easy afternoon. That's what I aim for too. Sometimes things don't work out but generally they do.
I don't like to see healthy trees cut down either. All those years of growing and Bang, they're down.

Glad you had a nice day. Yes, that garden shed needs some paint. To me it looks like a large, dilapidated outhouse from "back in the day." Have a good weekend. See you again soon!

“Mooing with meaning.” I like that. I hope her calf had not gone missing. A couple of years ago, the power company cleared the right-of-ways under lines here. I understand that it is necessary to keep all of us in power.

The first photo: we would not be allowed to walk on this road in the UK. Too dangerous with traffic.

God bless.

Hello,
I love the photo with the cows. I think Tom above is correct, the trees grew too close to the wires or the too big near the house. Have a happy weekend!

Total ridiculousness, to cut down all those trees. Unless they were diseased....

It's too bad that it was decided to cut down those trees. We need more trees these days.

That is a well weathered shed. Glad you could take the afternoon off.

The cows have their priorities straight.

Now that looks like a job of work I'd enjoy! A paint makeover for the garden shed!!

Yes, that garden shed could do with some paint or wood-stain.

All the best Jan
